I had a good experience in the hospital. The staff took great care of me. Not all of the staff speaks English but there is some one there that dose.

Hello, Everyone! Tomorrow I go home after a surgery I stressed so much about having away from home. What a relief to know my worries were for nothing. All of you, Betty, Ana, Alex, Paco and of course Dr. Samano took the utmost care to everything I needed before and after. I might add the family and Friends stressed even more than I did, and I was the one having surgery!! Betty talked to them personally and answer all their questions as well. Thank you so much to everyone helping achieve a goal I wanted a very long time.

From the very first contact I had with MyMedical Vacations (Katie), via the MyMedical Vacations website portal, was so helpful. Katie’s professionalism, punctuality in responding to requests, questions, and her knowledge of all to do with the procedures and the area was beyond exemplary. Katie also provided information and contacts required for hotel arrangements. For example, Katie went to great lengths to find me a travel agent to help arrange with my hotel that I wanted to stay in after my surgery and all other necessary things to get me there. I was also provided information on all aspects of the procedures, the information regarding appointments and processes and payments. After I arrived in Cancun I was promptly met at the airport, quickly taken to my hotel where reservations had been made for me…. then I started meeting the team. The team is with you for all appointments, lab work, trips to the office visits, hospital. I cannot say enough good things about everyone of the team that I met. Paco, Bettye, and Ana (my nurse). Everyone went above and beyond for me. I felt safe and never had to worry about anything. It made my whole trip worry free. I will use them again the very near future.

Reveert's public relations personnel, Lori Payne, answered all my questions and concerns, arrange all my appointments as well as follow up very quickly to accommodate my schedule. Dr. Alejandro was very professional, extremely knowledgable and very personable. My results for the arm lift perfectly matched my vision. I received stellar service throughout the entire process, including hospital staff, and the entire process took minimal amount of time. I strongly recommend Reveert, Dr. Alejandro and the location of my hospital stay to anyone considering surgery

Superb! Dr. Alejandro, Lori the coordinator, nurses and the entire staff were outstanding. They answered all questions professionally, clearly, patiently and promptly about the surgery and post-op expectations. They offered the latest approved surgical techniques. The follow-up care was excellent. Dr. Alejandro's credentials are sterling. The hospital is state-of-the art in Zapópan near Guadalajara. It can hold its own with the finest in any country. It is also aesthetically pleasing. Patient care is superb. I researched carefully, as you should, where to have my plastic surgery performed. REEVERT was an excellent choice all round. Do not fear coming to REVEERT in Guadalajara in any way. The city and the colonial gem, Tlaquepaque, nearby are safe, beautiful, filled with cultural activities and fine cuisine. The Mexican people are universally kind and cordial. I recommend that you stay fairly near to the hospital in any number of delightful places in Mexico should there be any minor glitches. Combining your healing process with a pleasant vacation will take your mind off things. Lori is a goldmine of information on what you might enjoy. Am I glad I chose REEVERT to get rid of my "turkey wattle?" Absolutely. The results look terrific.

Very happy I choose Dr. Luis Picard for my surgery in Panama . He fully understood what I was looking for - size , shape and results for my breast implants change with lift combination. I had ZERO POST-op pain - this was a surprising element as I was able to return to work in 2 days. Dr. Picard is very profesional , to the point - just the way I like it. Both of his assistants also done a great job following up on me. Super happy with the results ! Will be back for another upgrade in he near future:) Thank you!

Dr. Piccard-Ami gave me thorough information, as well as complete follow-up care. I, being a gastric-bypass patient, prior to coming to see him, as well as botched procedures prior, was relieved by my results following reconstructive breast augmentation and a tummy tuck to remove scarring from previous intestinal exploratory surgery and twice botched breast augmentation. I was relieved to find a competent and professional who has honed his craft. Dr. Piccard-Ami's work was cut out for him, as I was a difficult case, he confidently and skillfully restored my self confidence. My gratitude thus far is immesurable. You're the best doc, thank you so much! When, I have more money.... my thighs are next!!!

What is Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)?

Abdominal etching (liposculpture) is a cosmetic surgery procedure where an individual’s abdominal muscles are defined using liposuction. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck that involves the removal of significant amounts of fat and skin. Abdominal Etching is best suited for those who are already close to their ideal weight since no skin and only small amounts of fat will be removed as the surgeon is sculpting the appearance of the abdomen.

 

Abdominal etching was developed in the early 1990’s and its popularity has been steadily increasing for the last 20 years. Both men and women want to undergo this surgery so they can achieve the chiseled abs and flat stomach that are eye-catching today.

 

Abdominal etching is not a weight loss surgery. If you are having weight issues then it is best to look into alternative treatments that will give you your desired results.

 

If you have already had a tummy tuck or liposuction, then you can travel abroad for abdominal etching. This procedure cannot be carried out at the same time but rather at a later date.

 

A Good Candidate for Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)

During a tummy tuck procedure, loose muscles are tightened using stitches. Abdominal etching is only carried out for patients who already have reasonably tight muscles and are seeking to extensively define them. If you require more than what this type of plastic surgery offers, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

 

Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture) Procedure

Abdominal etching surgery is done under general or local anesthetic. If you choose local anesthetic, the plastic surgeon may give you sedatives as well. It is normally an outpatient procedure so you will not be required to stay overnight in a hospital. You will, however, be monitored for a few hours after the surgery to assure stability.

 

Before the surgery, the plastic surgeon will mark on your abdomen indicating where your muscles are when you flex. The markings will allow the surgeon to introduce the grooves with a special cannula during the procedure. Liposuction is carried out through tiny incisions made on your body to implicate these grooves. The incisions will take a couple of weeks to heal.

 

Average Duration of Abdominal Etching Surgery: 2-3 hours
